Unique and eco friendly self-contained 1 room studio. Relax and unwind in this lovely bush setting, positioned for sun with a view through the bush towards Onekeka Inlet. Cosy and warm at night (with woodburner for winter warmth). Comfortable queen size bed in main room and a spare double bed up in the cosy mezzanine loft.

Decks on three sides invite you to enjoy the peace and tranquility of bush and birdsong, sunsets and stargazing.

Take a soak in the bath or shower on the covered back deck in bush surroundings. Cook your meals in the kitchenette or outside on the gas BBQ.

With sustainable, environment-friendly living as the goal on this property, recycling is encouraged here. The composting toilet is clean and user-friendly.

Qualifed naturopath, craniosacral therapist and flower essence practitioner Carolyn is available nearby for consultations by appointment. (View yourfloweressences website for more info).

Great for a retreat or as a relaxing home base from which to explore the tranquil beauty of Golden Bay. Rustic and romantic.

Onekaka is a great location, halfway between Takaka and Collingwood Townships. Here you're in the heart of Golden Bay, the perfect location to explore our many beautiful attractions in either direction. Onekaka Beach is a 2 minute drive away. Walk up the main road to the famous Mussel Inn Bush Cafe which offers meals, their own boutique beers and wines and a diverse range of entertainers (see musselinn website). See the glow worms as you walk back home after dark. Walk through virgin beech and rimu forest in nearby Washbourn Reserve or make the longer trek uphill to the Onekaka dam.

Special conditions: Non-smokers only please Property not suitable for toddlers Definitely no pets

  • What a lovely wee cottage

    What a lovely wee cottage. We recommend staying here if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of things and enjoy some time out in nature. The bath on the deck is scrumptious.
